The Las Vegas Aces have beaten up on the Sun in the previous two meetings in the bubble, which includes a 15-point victory about two weeks ago. The Aces have gotten whatever they wanted offensively in the two games against the Sun. With that said, the Sun have eliminated two really good teams to get to this point and there's something to be said about that. Sometimes a team gets hot out of nowhere and surprises us on a playoff run and that could be the Sun this season. I'll take a shot with the Sun and the points.
